Alpha Academy Alumnae Association (Toronto Chapter)

Welcome to the home page of the Alpha Academy Alumnae Association (Toronto Chapter) located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The organization is made up of former students of the Convent of Mercy Academy “Alpha” of Kingston, Jamaica. The Association has been actively involved in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) community for over 40 years supporting other charitable organizations, including the Alliance of Jamaican Alumni Associations (AJAA).  Through the AJAA, we provide scholarship funds for high school graduates to pursue higher education and support their Care and Share initiative.  The Toronto Chapter hosts Brunches and Dinner Dances throughout the year to provide assistance to our alma mater, Alpha, through scholarships, project funding and other initiatives.

Message from President Gillian Amos



On behalf of the executive team of the Alpha Academy Alumnae Association (Toronto Chapter), I would like to wish you a Happy New Year and the very best for 2023.


A new year offers us renewed hope and anticipation.  It provides us with an opportunity to work towards the achievement of our goals.  May yours come to fruition.


The year 2022 continued to be a challenge for fundraising events given the pandemic but we were able to, once again, host our Easter Pick Up and Go.  Thanks to you, it was a success.

Our support of our Alma Mater did not wane during the last year as we provided scholarships to students and donated funds to various initiatives.  A highlight was the opening of the Maths Centre at Alpha, our gift to the school in recognition of the Association’s 40th Anniversary, celebrated in 2019.

For 2023, we are planning to have at least two events and you will have a say on what these could be.  Stay tuned.


Alumna, family and friends, we thank you for your continued support of the Toronto Chapter and look forward to seeing you soon.

Kind regards,

Gillian Amos
